A patient asked 7 months ago
My main areas of concern is to get rid of slight double chin (1), create a more chiseled jawline by getting rid of fat on the sides under jawbone (2) and lift and slim the lower face (3). I’ve heard of Ultherapy actually causing fat meltdown in people’s faces. If I am actually looking for fat reduction, would it then be a good method for me? What about inadvertent melting of connective tissue? Is this mostly about not using the machine correctly? What are the alternative methods out there?

Ultherapy for Lower Face

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Ultherapy can provide you with a nice skin tightening and lifting effect and can provide some improvements with your jawline and chin. However, Ultherapy primarily works by stimulating collagen (hence, tightening and lifting skin) and it does not melt way fat. For that, you can consider Kybella, CoolSculpting or WarmSculpting (SculpSure) that can specifically target fat cells and destroy them. Also a full face evaluation is needed as your picture does not provide a complete view and in some cases, we can also try jaw slimming with Botox or other neuromodulator to further create a slimmer and “V-shaped” face. I hope it helps and good luck!
